"Value of having somebody that's been through, you know, been through these processes, been through the cycle, being able to lean on your own intuition to make a sound business decision here. And you're kind of like the founder or The Godfather of the sound business, well run dental practice as a business, at least in my eyes, you've changed the whole scope of things for a lot of people out there, and that's why there are so many folks within DSI running very sophisticated and well run businesses and no matter what happens, I think that we've hedged we've hedged ourselves by just setting it up correctly from the beginning. And I mean, to your point, to both your so taher said, you know, you still don't want to spend 3000 more on a compressor. So that's a business practice. Let's negotiate the bid. Where can we go with these bids? How can we make it fit within budget? Because every dollar saved now as we know is a dollar is quicker to profit later on. So I think the days of just spending money all, I'll worry about the debt later, like some of us just had to deal with when we took on those student loans. I'd say, hey, if you could make that loan 550,000 instead of 6 75, that's real money, you know? So let's watch out and let's pay attention and let's dissect all these bids and let's work with people that know how to do that and know how to normalize everything. Yep. Were you about to say something? No, I disagree, man. I'm left brained, and if it makes sense, if I do the math, and I write it out, and I know like, hey, okay, everyone is saying this. Everyone is saying, don't do this, but then the math makes sense. Then at the end of the day, just follow your gut, follow the resources you have. And a bad economic time doesn't mean do a star for acquisition. It just means to be really aware of what you're doing and what you're putting your name on. And it could still be amazing if you do your demographic, because you do everything right. It's not all about interest rates. It's multifactorial always, as every problem is. And the thing is if you have the right guidance and if you do the research and if you put in the work and if you're dedicated to it, you can still make it and do some really amazing things. Yeah, and I'm reminded too that when we get sucked into all these Talking Heads and these people that are doom and gloom are on the radio, and on TV, we have to be reminded that, you know, negativity sells airtime it sells eyeballs. And this is, this is very calculated by these people. And it is really refreshing in our circles. In DSN, 1300

"From the most recent dental success summit. Engineering your phases of growth was the theme for this particular panel. In this panel was doctor Addison Colleen, doctor Kelly dove, doctor Ben cakes, doctor Aaron Nicholas, and doctor taher dune. Some of my favorite and most successful dentists that I know. If you guys haven't listened to part one, it'll make a whole lot more sense if you stop this recording right now, go back, listen to part one and then come on back and plug in for this part two episode. Engineering your phases of growth, lots of great stuff in here. We go from the very beginning to multi multi multi-million dollar practices, whether that's multiple location model or a large practice model with multiple specialties in multiple providers. So I hope you guys enjoyed this episode. I hope you get some value from it and we'll talk to you soon. Doctor Aaron Nicholas, doctor Aaron Nicholas is the only black belt coach that no longer owns a practice. You recently, or not so recently, transitioned out of your dental practice after a very, very great career and a long string of successful management and ownership of your dental practice. You've gone through all the phases. You've gone through the phases of just like Ben talked about barely being able to keep the lights on. Not knowing what the heck you were doing. So maybe you could talk to us about that phase from cluelessness to $1 million. I know there's a huge span there, but what are we focusing on that first phase of growth? Yeah, I would say that starting out if you have gotten your dental degree, you're really good at being focused on school and you're really good at school. And that's really what you're good at. If you happen to have the advantage of having some other sort of life experience, I was surprised to hear Travis had been over like a hundred guys. And it had run that large of an organization. That's a huge leg up because you're starting to learn how to deal with people and what things are important and what things aren't important. I started my practice in 88, which was forever ago. And so a lot of there was just no consultants that you could just call up and get a word of advice. There weren't podcasts to go listen to. There wasn't anything online to go look up. So you sort of were like wandering around in the dark until you sort of found somebody. For me, I found at the very beginning stages. I really had to spend a lot of time working on myself. And how I interacted with my staff and what I expected of them, and what was reasonable and what was not reasonable. I've been through the hot head stage where I would get mad immediately and snap at a staff member. I think possibly the only thing that saved me there was I just, for me, personally, it's not the person I wanted to be. So I always had a policy of I would always go and apologize to the staff member. I would always go and make it right. Invariably they go, it's okay. I'm like, no, it's not okay. That's not the way we treat people. And so hopefully sort of showing what I kind of wanted to see from them also. I also went through a phase where I had a consultant say to me, well, what you need to do is thank all of your staff every day at the end of the day for the work that they do. And I looked at him and I said, are you kidding me? They get a paycheck on Friday, you know? He's like, yes, but think about this. What did it come out of a meeting where they had kicked the doctors out and said to the staff, what would make you feel appreciated? And that was what my staff had said. And so then the consultant calls you up near this conversation. He says, Doc. They could have asked for a trip to Hawaii. They could have asked for you to pay for their gym memberships. They could have asked you for a raise across the board. What they asked you to do was to open up your mouth and say thank you at the end of the day. It costs you literally nothing. I was talking to the young Doc to bought my practice and I was telling them the story. I said, you know, the really interesting thing was, after about two months, I actually appreciated my staff more. Because it's really hard to do that at the end of every day. And be a butt head all day long. You're an idiot all day long. You go, oh, thank you so much for your hard work. It just doesn't work. So then once I kind of got my own crap sort of figured out a bit, then the next stage is definitely, it was all about systemization. It's like, you hire somebody, you try to hire experience people because they know what they're doing. But you don't know what they're doing. The office doesn't have a policy. And if Sally does this and Mary does that, well, who's right? We don't have a standard. So somehow we have to create a standard. I had a staff member like you that I thought was she knew how to do everything front and back, always took care of stuff. She quit on me in four hours notice. I was so unsystematized that when she told me she was going to be leaving that lunch and she would not be back. I put her in my office with a piece of the stack of paper and a pen. I'm like, write down everything you do. Because I literally had no idea what she did at all whatsoever. So then you start to grow through that phase where you get stuff systematized and you have you were talking about the patient experience and that gets systematized. And the way that we do setups the way we do procedures that gets systematized. The way that we bring patients into the practice, that's gets systematized. Our marketing, it gets systematized. Everything you consistent, you can track. And so once you can track it, you can tell what's working and what's not working. And then you know where to go. So you're not wandering around the dark. And each step gives you a little bit more clarity. So then you get to where things you have clarity,.

"Correlated with hypertension and strokes. To avoid this long-term deadly disease, the American Heart Association recommends a healthy diet and exercise. So today's challenge is to get at least 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise, outdoors, or indoors, walking, running, or biking. Get this in and see how much it actually helps increase your energy level. We only have a few days left, but you can start the full 16 day challenge at any time by visiting dental success network dot com forward slash for futures challenge. Hope to see you guys in here. Take care. All right guys, I'm really excited because I get to hang out with a good friend today. Somebody who just spoke on behalf of all of his companies at the dental success summit on stage in front of 700 people brought the house down as usual. This is one of our awesome black belt coaches inside DSI. The founder of the Colorado surgical institute and the owner of a wildly successful dental practice, doctor taher doom. How are you doing, my friend? I'm doing great, man. I'm doing great. I'm glad to be back on the podcast. Yeah, man. So I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day. You're having a team meeting today. And you're actually on your cell phone. So thank you for carving out the time. It's not the traditional podcast episode where you're sitting in from in front of your laptop, but this will definitely do. I'll take it. Yeah, man. Well, yeah, we do a buy annual meeting. And the team is just having a whole lot of fun. And it really helps to build the culture of the practice. And that's really the direction we're taking things these days. Yeah, culture is so huge. So huge. Thank you again in front of the whole world for speaking at the summit. It was pretty high energy affair and you did an awesome job. You and your business manager, Chris Richards, really, really put on a great presentation. Yeah, one of the coolest things is a lot of the different sponsors came up and they're like, man, your program has run so well. And we find that not every program has a Chris. And it was just the coolest thing to hear that, you know, I've partnered up at the right person who's, you know, helping build something really phenomenal. It's true. I mean, there's so many different elements that people don't recognize and understand about putting on continuing education. It's like, okay, you have this unique knowledge that you want to share with the world. And then you have to make sure that the world knows about the knowledge that you have and you have to convey the value that you can bring to their lives. And then you have to kind of know how to run a course once they are there. And there's so much behind the scenes that people don't realize. I was super naive about it when I started having my live events. It started really small with 40 people. And then 80 and now we're now closing in on a thousand. And there's just so much to it that people don't realize. And without a team, you're just screwed. Yeah, I totally agree. Every good thing is built on the shoulders of good people. For sure, for sure. So I mean, for people that don't know who you are, you've been on the podcast a bunch of times, but just for the benefit of just a quick summary, doctor tahari came into my life several years ago, I want to say four years ago now to here are 5. I think we're coming up on 5 years now, but yes, I'm working on right around there. Yeah, between four and 5 years ago, he came in as just a regular mastermind member. He wanted help with his practice. And somehow, you know, the universe brought us together and he ended up joining the mastermind group. He was super skeptical as far as how much we could help him in the beginning. And he ended up being just one of the breakout awesome members that we had. Eventually got his black belt. And then became a black belt coach. And since then, his practice has grown, I want to say 700% perhaps something like that, something crazy. And he is now founded the Colorado Colorado surgical institute, which is a really, really cool institute that allows doctors from any state to come to his facility. And you and Dan briskey and a number of mentors, surgical mentors, teach people how to do all on X procedures, advanced surgical procedures, actually able to put hands on patients and do the procedures with the mentor standing over their shoulders. So it's super, super valuable stuff. And the skill set that you guys are passing on to people is really a game changer in a lot of cases where you're going from just a bread and butter, dental practice to now a practice where you can really, really maximize the amount of production that's coming out of your practice every hour. Yeah, and I think that's one of the unique things about what we're doing is we are general dentists teaching other general dentists, like how we kind of created something really special within our own practice and we're continuously calibrating and refining our own systems within our practice. And so everything we're teaching is real time. And it's also super humbling to even just hear you kind of talk about my kind of journey and what I've done over the years. I can't believe it's only been 5 years. But I hear you talk about it and it was such a surreal moment to be on stage presenting to everyone where I was in the audience, just a few years ago, you know, frantically taking down notes and trying to remember everything that was said. So it's just been a really fun ride. Yeah, and I can't think of a better person. And it comes down to, I believe, implementation and just desire, right? You have to have the drive to do it. We say all the time that, you know, 1480 plus episodes now, the dental premiere podcast. Everything that we talk about in the mastermind, everything we talk about at the summits and our live events that people travel from all over the world to be at, all that information is available on the podcast. Maybe not organized in the way that is easy to digest for a full curriculum. But it's all there. And there's also. A huge amount of, I guess, transparency, when people get on there and we're doing case studies, et cetera. People are sharing their actual vulnerabilities, they're sharing their actual numbers. They're overhead in the beginning, overhead in the middle, overhead in the end. And it's just super valuable to be around a community like this, but what separates the people that dabble, and the people that get so, so results are people like you with this deep drive to really, really implement. And knowing that you can't do it by yourself, surrounding yourself with level ten people, which is what rose and Chris and Michaela, the rest of your team are for you, both from a clinical side and an admin and business management side. So kudos to you for assembling all of that because God knows you can't do it by yourself. Yeah. Amen to that, man. And thank you for the kind words and I just wish Chris and rose were here to hear you say those things because I know it would make their freaking year. Yeah, the good news is this is all recorded. So tell me about what's happening at let's talk about Colorado surgical first. And if we have time, we'll go into all of the crazy, incredible growth that you've experienced at your dental practice. But first, let's talk about Colorado surgical. How did it start? How many people have gone through there? How many sessions have been done and what types of numbers are you putting out as far as clinical procedures completed? Yeah, yeah, awesome. All really good questions. So initially, this thing started super organically where I just started doing a lot of full large procedures or overdentures or wisdom teeth or whatever the case may be. I mean, currently I all I do is surgery, sleep apnea and orthodontics for the practice. But I say it's 80 20 where it's 80% surgery and 20% sleep north on we're currently building out those departments. And so docs would just come in and watch us do our thing. And take notes and we just get calls from docs in Colorado who either had a complex case and they're like, oh yeah, well, can you treat my patient and.

"Aren't set up correctly from the beginning. The practice launch pad is a company with a mission of helping dentists to avoid the most common and expensive mistakes that occur when starting or acquiring a new dental practice, and to walk with them through the entire process from site selection, architecture, design, IT, equipment, marketing, team onboarding, systemization, and everything in between. The practice launchpad team is made up of four practicing dentists with real street Cred that have collectively owned 25 dental practices. First on the list is doctor Addison Colleen. Addison was previously the co owner of a thriving 7 practice group before he sold his interest to strike it out on his own. He is now the sole owner of an 18 month old startup that averages a 120 new patients per month and has a gross revenue of $2.1 million with a below 50% overhead. Next is doctor Chris green. Chris opened his startup two and a half years ago, and in the first 12 months his practice was averaging a 102 new patients per month and producing and collecting $1.2 million. The same practice now has revenues of $2.6 million with an overhead of under 40% and Chris is now only at the chair two and a half days per week. Next on the list is doctor taher doom to hair acquired a practice four years ago that was producing $1.1 million with a 68% overhead. His practice has grown to collect $3.4 million over the last 12 months with below 50% overhead. To hair, now practices, clinical dentistry, two days per week. And finally, myself, doctor Mark cost us, since 2003, I've owned 16 dental practices, 6 startups and ten acquisitions in California and Arizona. I currently own 6 practices employed nearly a hundred people with annual revenues in the 8 figures. Between Addison, Chris to hair and I, we haven't done everything right in our practice ownership journeys..

He had this he very much had the sort of like proto chance humanist view of the future he thought that the biblical resurrection was waiting to happen through the global communication. That works were emerging at the time of news writing and i think though like the late forties early fifties. This is all very of his really prussian allegations ideas immersion glenn to somebody who's also written about the biblical resurrection. He catholic wrote about sort of these cushion. Prophecies says being carried out biotechnology. I didn't realize mcluhan would use that. I like i reread. The medium is the massage many times sienna. But i didn't. I didn't know that he actually directly dried knew. It was important to him personally. I didn't know it made. Its way into his work. I came to this knowledge also very recently my friend nick re patronage he reds for the millions he just wrote a biography of marsh in focuses on his catholicism and aloe influences work yeah. It's called digital communicates coming out soon. I believe that's fascinating. Yes really fascinating. And so yeah. He was another like mid-century thinker who was really ensue ensues technology and how it could sit in with epochal prophesied so there is this direct lineage. And i trace out those for schneider. Ideas basically got into view through this other thinker julian huxley who ended up secularized saying these religious idea instead of was the starting point for transient ism. But yes there. There is that like direct lineage. and then there's also. I think really. It's like a lot of it is he's unconscious.

"These things out. They have a good model in israel. I think a program of of national service for young people is a really good idea. Look think about all of us when you're in your second semester in high school after After the college from that january until august that was probably the least productive time of your entire life yet. Unless you're a baseball by my son play baseball with been all that happy about losing springs for that period of time should be a period of national service and i think a lot of young people should be trained in something technical some should get exposed to computing. Maybe going into computer science degree. So there's a lot of things to learn from countries like israel that i think get that right. I do think that the they're proud of that. They right to be. I think that's a good program. I mean as an example of how the private sector one wants to promote more education and more knowledge security in general. The salesforce has partnered with the world economic forum. We donate a lot of the material cybersecurity education material to the world economic forum. It's available forever. Just a small example of something was done. So yes i mean. I think we need to deal with this as an existential issue. We built an infrastructure for us and the next generations to live a better life effectively but we forgot to build it correctly. It's like when imagine if we started the airline industry way back when we just didn't care. Planes fell on the on the ground every other day or not. It's kinda likes us and it is actually a human issue because if you do not face this correctly it is right about. This is not going to get solved in a year or two or ten. We actually have to face reality and you know get certain groups of people to work on fixing what we've built them. Try to you know. Reinforce the foundation if you wish this is not you know. Some number of businesses got hacked. This is really an infrastructure but is lacking a lot of things and the lack of serves investment that people want to put into new building this infrastructure. Even thing is a bad word. That's insourcing this infrastructure. Fuck she worked better for all of us so that we can. You know detect these things earlier we can find these attacks earlier. There will always be bagged is but this just too easy for them to find things on. Ask people for ransom. Yeah i mean i think that's. That's the core of the article. We brought up just to start this conversation. Which is it's it's too lucrative. Too easy yeah. It feels almost like it's getting easier. I don't know if it's getting easier because it's more frequent so most people are leading to this idea that if it's more frequent it must beginning easier. There's more tools it's available. There's more research i mean. The the hacking communities are actually businesses. They employ people. They pay people derive these things. These servants whoever needs it is becoming easier. That is absolutely correct. Is is very very true. And most of the connectivity is high people hack into ip cameras to find their way into a bank. The overall system has not been very well studied to understand. What are the right thing to do. What limits back inside you know. We're getting close to the end of time by one. Close of this question Curious if you think this is ever going to happen you know when it comes to you mentioned the airline industry or we can talk about manufacturing vehicles the very very tight quality controls extremely tight right like you can't ship a motorcycle. The like if. I were to say motorcyle 'cause i used to be really in the motorcycling right. Every part every part has like down to like you know the pound per square inch or the pound per square millimeter. Like they have identified the tolerance the specification the millimeters clearance of every single part on that vehicle so that it is a safe as possible and of course we really see critical mass machine failures very often go to the airline and aviation. That's one hundred percent. Sure like planes really. Don't feel like that. Although the seven three seven max but do you ever see a place. Where like this code. Get to that level do. Api's get to that level where it has that level scrutiny where the companies do have any other option is wyoming right now. It seems like the option is. It's okay ship with mistakes in all's so hopefully like i mean to to tomorrow from ads comment it says like climate change. What options do we have anything else. You'd like to add to that. Like how do we ever get. You see a place where the requirements from companies that airtight on their security is going to be is going to be present like machining and manufacturing will get better gradually. It's gotten better already. I'm guessing for example that when you click on a e mail using your iphone it's a somewhat different experience that clicking on an email using our windows laptop somewhat different the windows operating system still maybe could use a little help with fishing and other types of things. That's why we're this big endpoint security business where we try and patch it up so things do get better. I think a thought that might be useful for your listeners. as we close is a question i get asked all the time. And that's whether we're going to see some big horrible cyber attack. That kills a lot of people and i don't think we will let me tell you why i think americans when we get pushed a little too hard we get pissed and you don't really wanna get americans piston together with us too hard we will pull together and we'll come at you so the best thing you can do to america's exactly what our adversaries are doing to us now and that's ripping us apart by injecting fake news causing red states and blue states not like each other and having this very slow kind of gnawing level of attacking hitting us. That's probably the best way to to go after the united states of america. Exactly what's happening now it's annoying. We don't know what to do. Running around circles were arguing with this that we're spending money we're going in circles. The worst thing. An adversary to do would be really hit us. Because then you'd see everybody pulled together and that's such an american thing and i'm not certainly not rooting for anybody to hit us. I don't want that to be the case. Pray that a dozen dump saying short of that. You're in the middle of it now when you say. Is it going to get bad. It's like no. It's bad this sincere in it now. This is pretty bad and it's going to continue until generation. We can fix this. I wish i could tell you that. There was a short short cut. But i don't see it on. Tv show or something and they said what. Could i do right now to make our country more secure. I said go get your sixth grader and helper with calculus homework. That's the best thing you can do to help us with cyber security in our country. So that's how i think of it. Don't think you're gonna see planes falling out of the sky in nuclear plants blowing up in.

Go and introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about what you guys are up to. Your respective companies will start with at nice to be here guys looking forward. Tonight's discussion always learn something new when catch up with a tie her of it's gonna be a lot of fun talking about cyber security. How about yourself at an. I have been involved in cybersecurity before the word cyber wars avenue invented. So it's really fun to be here. I have all salesforce that covers a lot of security over being touched security program awesome. Thanks for joining us today on the show now before we get started. We always wanted to talk about you. Know one of the things i was thinking about is bringing up news. Cybersecurity is always changing. I read an article about how fifteen hundred businesses were affected by the largest. Us ransomware attack. just recently. It was reported on july fifth between eight hundred and fifteen hundred businesses around the world reflected in its centered on. Us information technology firm cassia. Now whether that attack you know whether that case specifically that's not the issue what is the issue is it does really feel like the size scale and scope of cybersecurity tax. It just keeps increasing. And i know more and more people are on the job trying to solve this problem but i love to hear your perspective on why like houses keep getting bigger like it feels like we should be stopping these but it doesn't feel that way feels like they're more frequent getting bigger. I how do we. What is this solution weather. The state of affairs it. We need to solve the get towards a solution. Start the conversation at. I'd love to hear perspective on what is going on. Well first of all it set expectations. nobody's going to get a solution to this from any of us on a podcast. It's not gonna happen if if if we had the solution that i have a feeling And i would be out on our boats right now but mixture the next thirty minutes somebody over if we could solve it we certainly would. But it's too easy to do these things we've learned over the years when you build things. That are complicated. That you kinda of don't understand. And i really think that characterizes almost everything that's put place with some exceptions businesses that put in place a network and put some sort of security in place by some software by some apps and operate maybe understanding eighty ninety percent. What they've got. It shouldn't come as a surprise that someone understands what they're running an operating what they bought better than they do. I mean think about anything you buy you buy a piece of software and you might be using it for five years and then somebody really knows in soccer says. Hey did you know that if you hit this button and that button in this one that this thing pops up you go. I'll be darn. I had no idea that is the way everyone operates their business. That's how we run. It systems where you have pretty good idea of how things work. But then some hacker comes along and understands it better than you do and we wonder why we get hacked. So i always say it's not a matter of buying a bunch of things that are going to protect you. It's taking the time. Maybe it's even futile some case in at least trying to understand what you've got a once you understand it. It's much much much easier to secure. What the place so that to me when you say fifteen hundred businesses then doesn't surprise me. I'm sure doesn't surprise her. We've seen people getting hacked and usually it's because it's not because they're just crazily negligent. It's that they just don't understand. They're the first ones most surprise group of goma gush didn't realize that could happen and then they tried to fix that until the next thing happened. So that's kind of the the core problem until we address said that complexity and the level of understanding what we run were those of us in the cybersecurity business. You're going to be very busy right and continue. Maybe that's a full employment. Act or something but it really is the From tire does that make sense to you. This issue people understand. This is dismissed a lot of sense. But i think it's also deeper than this. Because building systems today is the keeper who built systems. Do not actually understand every single sink in it because you take third party components you pick open source things and you put them all together. I need a tour in. It's actually very difficult to understand. What the tech sector could be when you put all of these things together and the hacker is lucky because they have automated tools and they just run the army the tools until they find an open accessible for a hacker one opening to sufficient well for people who build things you actually have to cover every single of. it's actually very very unfair of a gene. I'm generally not the alarmist person. But i think this is completely predictable and this is the beginning because all systems are built flexes from the smallest company so the biggest companies you know. The big companies spent a lot of time and a lot of effort to secure themselves. Which duty well. But the components of all the systems that run together and the level of connectivity between everything and everything else just.

Okay make sure you got mango or your your Your phone system up and running and make sure it moves smoothly and so. It's kind of like a play by play in terms of exactly how to do that guy to watch man. It's to be really cool so wind. Can we expect like the release of this book so it is in q. With amazon publishing right now. We're waiting for one. Last final of i guess quick check on everything to make sure you know we got all the is dotted t.'s. Crossed so i have a suspicion that this should be released by november. I and And then the webpage all that stuff will take a little bit more time to get situated in up and running so hopefully by the beginning of december the website will be fully functional. With all the links in hyper links back linking setup with contributors nice. This is going to be awesome. And it's gonna be really really good and everybody will let you guys know as well. Whenever the the book launches you can definitely go in the show notes below Because that's where you're gonna give us like all the info for that right absolutely absolutely awesome so guys you can go in the show notes below and check out all that information as and then anything else that we might have left out. Yeah just from like a ground marketing perspective. I think right now more. So the not a cool program That were running in the practice is called our stay local program and so what we're doing is we're reaching out to local businesses. Were saying. Hey i mean more so than ever right now. Important that we stick together especially through kovin the shutdowns in everything so for example. We have our dental savers. Plan that we be you know. Have chris phelps talked about in the book and We go to those these for example like a florist or go to them. This say they have five. Employees will say look. Our dental plan is four hundred bucks per year. You have five employees so we are giving you guys two thousand dollars worth of hygiene or two thousand dollars worth of dentistry. Basically and over the course of the year you can give us your full fee for two thousand dollars worth of flowers so and we take those flowers. We'll give them out to the hygienics on the hygiene month. Which i think it is right now or we'll give it out to patients. If maybe they have a loss your sunday lose someone or someone has like a new promotion. We'll send it to their job. They finished Hours to their their A place of employment were repurposing those things and then from a scheduling standpoint. Anyone who's on the stay stay local program. They don't get to pre book.

"At our own little spin to it and we've never even tried it. You know what i mean and then does it. Work does not. i don't know. But i'm teaching it and so two to know that book has like it's been tested pretty much know what i mean. That's really good and then you also told me that there's always going to be updates to all right. Yeah so. I mean if you read an especially with your your guys's industry with marketing. If i were to read a marketing book that was published three years ago on social media or anything regarding like you know. Seo sem as all antiquated none of it's applicable anymore. So the last thing we wanted to do was have to do a re release on a two point. Oh in a release for three point out. So that's the beauty of like the digital component to. This is what will do anyone who kind of signs up with the book. We'll get some their email and what we'll do every time there's an update let's say for example the marketing sector or like. Hey you know someone. Just completely crushed. Did they started a startup and they had a hundred new patients booked before they opened the doors. My use that example. Because that's what chris startup was. He had one hundred people hundred new patients scheduled before he ever started his first day. And that's why i say he's savant with the stuff so if we hear any techniques to do that will we're gonna do we're gonna record podcast with it or we're gonna get video content or will call that contributor and say hey whatever you did or whatever you know in this avenue we're gonna put up on the website links to it all and then will contact everyone. Who has the book and just how. Hey go check out this thing. This update on marketing Because especially now where the economy is changing. The law. Legislation is probably gonna change quite a bit in the near future and.

"Some of them have like like little offers for people who are of reading the book you'll have access to the free content that they've created so you know just like yourself have access to your podcast access any free content. You have have a links to any of the paid commented in the programs and things you've put together and is a good way to funnel people to the right people like for me. I have wasted so much money for years trusting the wrong people light three. Cpa's through like five or seven different marketing people on through four different payroll companies. I've done three different. You know practice management softwares and when you when you add all this up super super expensive so One thing also that we did is we said like here. This is all the people we trust in the industry and here are the people that you know. You can go to for actionable like good content. Where you know they care about you. They don't care about the dollar. Of course you know. Everyone charges for their services. But you know that they're going to do it in a way that's right by you and they're not going to exploit you because will we hear from all the dentists in the area is. We had a bad experience doing this. Or my practice overhead to seventy percent. And i just don't know wear i'm bleeding from and we can just referenced the book and go to these contributors and then they can help figure out exactly where the pain points. Are we just start plugging all the leaks in all of a sudden. You see the overhead for your business star to shrink and contract and he actually started being profitable. Yeah so then. What's the rationale you said like you're actually gonna.

Needs like ep ally insurance and worker's comp and and different disability insurances and the practice overhead insurances in ways to protect yourself in case that maybe there's a disability. Your there's a lawsuit. Most people you guys you know for the people listening to the dentist listening are are blowing are protected classes together. These super careful with that I had someone sue me because they said it was a wrongful termination. Suit discrimination suit because she was pregnant and when she was pregnant. I terminated her employment but she was. You know late six times out of eleven days straight. So you know bass why. Shoes terminated though. It's just like i had to go through the wringer but my ep ally insurance and of kicked in and it protected me through you know through that stressful time periods. Yeah people here.

Iraq said. You'll love it tells her story and she's still here today. She had something to do with this movie.
